Handmade Christmas Gifts

Here are some pics of handmade gifts I made my family for Christmas 2008.
I made four elves ( 1 each for my mum, 2 sisters and sister-in-law). I got the pattern from here. The elves stand about 20" tall and are balanced by a bag of rice inside. Unfortunately, I did not have time to make one for myself :(

I also made six rudy's for my 6 nieces. They stand approx 12" (30cm) tall. I got the pattern from here. I made a medallion for each rudy to wear around his neck with the initial of each niece inside so I would not get them mixed up. I thought they came out rather cute. What do you think?

Here is a close up of his sweet little face.
